WOW!! We have just got back from a wonderful weeks stay at Villa Golden and we can't stop talking about what a great time we all had! What made this holiday so special were the amazing staff at the villa who we are missing already. Pushpa with her delicious local home cooked food and beaming smile, always willing to make that few extra pancakes in the morning for the children - all her food was very tasty and she made some of the best meals we had in Sri Lanka. Susantha was extremely helpful all of the time - he was our 'fixer' from arranging tuk tuks, elephant rides, fishing trips, yoga lesson, massages and telling us where to go in the local area - Susantha would bring us our morning tea down on the beach every morning without fail - such a nice gesture. We were kept safe at night by the lovely Suranga the night watchman who came and looked after us each evening - all the staff were extremely friendly and genuine.
The villa was beautiful and has a nice rustic feel to it. The garden is paradise with loads of shady areas and the pool was superb! The beach at the bottom of garden is like having our own private beach it is quiet during the day but then comes alive just before sunset - its great to watch the fishermen return with their catch and if you are feeling energetic you can even help them pull the nets in! The sea was clean and warm but could get a bit rough at times. We found a little 'rustic' beach bar about 500 meters from the villa the current owner has just taken over and is very keen.
We travelled as two families with four children aged between 10 and 16 and we all had an amazing time - we are booking to go back again next year! …
